Sacred Geometry deals with our perception and definition of space. It is the Universal framework by which the spiritual manifests into the material. In ancient times it was believed that numbers are the underlying reality behind all things. All things were linked through number and could be manifested through number. Number expressed in time is music, number expressed in space is geometry and number expressed in space-time is astrology. Just as astrology can provide us with a map of consciousness so can geometry.
These concepts are at the heart of the entire worldview of the ancients but have largely been forgotten in our time. Humanity has lost sight of the spiritual qualities of number and shape by our emphasis on quantity and computation. We’re taught to see numbers as mere quantities instead of possessing qualities and characters with distinct personalities, resonating with each other and the Universe in a harmonious cosmic dance.
The videos in the Sacred Geometry theme update give a very basic introduction to Sacred Geometry.
There are a lot of books out there that deal with this subject, but one of the best ones for getting people ‘into’ Sacred Geometry is Michael S. Schneider’s “A Beginner’s Guide to Constructing the Universe – The Mathematical Archetypes of Nature, Art and Science”.
Don’t be put off by the title; it’s a terrific book with lots of pictures that is very easy to understand.
